Bed Sheets

I dreamed you were here again,
and clearly envisioned a yellow shirt
against green plaid;
your brown hair and simple breathing
upon the softest pillow I could offer,
feet extended beyond crumpled linens --
the ones with the pink and blue cross patterns.
I never liked those sheets,
but I quickly learn to sing new songs.
Why should anyone have to
rest on ugly sheets?
Make my poor taste in linens beautiful,
my love.
Stay with me again tonight and tomorrow,
and remind me how beautifully
these sheets wrap around you.
